I'm fearing that I will have seen more snow in Africa than I do here this entire winter....they're saying maybe flurries by Friday but the temperatures just don't have me convinced. Last winter was rather pathetic without a single heap, and I just don't know how I'll be able to handle it again.  Snow can do wonders for my spirit - a freshness and renewing.  
I've never really understood the people who want to go somewhere tropical and warm for Christmas. It just doesn't seem to fit. I can't drink hot chocolate and hang ornaments and make Christmas cookies when its 65+ degrees outside. Without winter nothing would seem to move, nothing would seem new. And that's the marking on this time of year. Starting again.

"Life should be something over which we weep." - Karey M. 

Her words are always so good, so appropriate when I come across them.  I've been weepy the whole week, possibly two and its seemingly getting worse. For things that are and things that aren't.
